I mean the 5th ump idea is solid. Not a time problem, and you get the right call.

Obviously it was a complete game. The debate is whether it was perfect. :p

Didn't a bad call cost the Twins last night in a 2-1 loss. If the twins tie for the division or wild card, or a down a game for it, should Bud go back and overturn that call?

The majority of them weren't thrown over a full 9 innings. The point is that the ruling doesn't affect the outcome of a game; it merely changes the way it is shown in the history books.

Nope. Take a look at the games it impacted.

Not to disagree that it could be overturned, but none of those listed were changed because of an ump's call.

They were all changed from no hitters to not no hitters because either 9 innings weren't pitched or the game lasted longer than the 9 innings of no hit ball pitched. I actually agree with all the instances listed on that site. It shouldn't be a legitimate no hitter unless you complete at least 9 innings and there are no hits at the time the game ends.

They should overturn the call. I don't give a damn about precedent or what it means for other blown calls.

I didn't see this posted yet, but Ken Griffey Jr. retired today. One of the all time greats of our generation and a player that truly played the game the right way.

Balls and strikes can never be argued, and will never be subject to replay.

By nature, the determination of pitch location is subjective. Whether a player is out or safe is not really the same. It's one thing or the other, whereas there is no physical definition of the strike zone. I don't think anyone would make an issue of this.

Yeah, I read about it yesterday. What I love most about Griffey is that in this whole "steroid era" mess, his name never came up.

My bad, I didn't feel like going through 5+ pages of Jim Joyce bashing to find out haha.

And yeah, Griffey was my favorite player to root for outside of anyone on the Braves.

Cool Griffey story...

In 1989, on a trip to Bakersfield, I went into a card shop and saw this cool baseball card. The shop owner said it was the first card from a new card company called Upper deck. Card #1 was this rookie phenom named Ken Griffey Jr. I bought the card for 3 bucks. The next week my best friend, Jeremy, had a birthday party. Knowing we were both avid card collectors, the card became a present. Who knew.

Ajax has made two more really impressive running catches in the first two innings today.

This kid is a future gold glover for sure. Just has to wait til Hunter and Ichiro retire it seems.

Knowing we were both avid card collectors, the card became a present. Who knew.
Also the first card ever to incorporate some kind of graphic art, making a San Bernardino Spirits hat look pretty indentical to a then Mariners hat.

My little Junior story. We took a group trip to Yankee Stadium when I was little. Not sure the exact date but I'd guess 91 or 92. And Griffey hit a screaming foul ball all the way to the upper deck on first base side towards right field. My mother was sitting like 4 rows behind me cause the group had like 4 or 5 rows of tickets. The ball nearly took her head off. And instead of being concerned that she's ok and not flustered or whatever, I yelled at her for not catching a ball that Griffey had hit.

God I hope that should-be perfect game was what the Tigers needed to light a fire under them.

They're crushing the ball offensively today, leading 5-1, but I know this is the Indians we're facing.

That said, maybe this can be their rallying point. They'd lost 8 of 10 before last night's game.

Damn it, the Indians are blooping their way back into this game.
